Minicast Episode 3: Apartment Prepping

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Today we talk about things you can do to prep inside of an apartment if you have no other choice other than to bug in at that location.

  • Security for the Front Door
  • Prepping inside a small space, space efficiency
  • Urban hunting
  • Apartment gardens and water collectiion
  • Insulating and heat efficiency


I talked about hiding things in a hollow core interior door, one way is to cut a hole, drop what you need in, fill it up and then patch that hole.  You will want to make sure that these are items you dont need to get every month or this will quickly become a wasted effort.  You can probably figure out how to cut a hole, here is a youtube Vid on how to patch that hole.

Here are also a few cool ways to hide smaller objects in a door, without cutting it out.

Also take a look at my post a few days ago on Hiding Places in your home and Property for a few more ideas.

Products for Door Bracing


ONGUARD Metal plate door brace is a bit more pricey but is said to be able to withstadn 1775 lbs of force.

Window Insulation

3m Is my favorite and what I use for the winter months, but there are others


Listen to my show on Firearms, and listen to the Shotgun section on home defense

As for the small game pellet/bbguns

I would get a Cheap Crossman 760 Pellet/BB pump Air gun, you can use both pellets and bb’s in this weapon. I would also look at something like the Daisy Powerline Pistol, so that you can carry that with you if you are foraging for animals in the city but away from your area so a “rifle’ doesnt draw attention walking around.  I still have my old Diana Pneumatic Pellet Gun from when i was a kid, it was built in “West Germany” to tell you how old it is and its still shooting true.

I know Diana makes rifles still and i have heard good things about the Diana 34 Meisterschutze its more spendy but its shoots at over 1000 fps (feet per second).
